So, up until week 5 I was trundling along nicely. W5r3 was a great lift and felt I was doing great.
Then week 6 happened. Run 1 was a massive low. I felt negative and really struggled to complete it.
Run 2 was great, it really was a breeze... So much so the run and the cool down walk totalled 4.9k in distance! And in just about 35mins. Perhaps I was a tad too fast, but felt great at the end.
Run 3 was a disaster. A total disaster. My legs just totally gave out and stiffened right up with about 6 mins to go. I managed to get going and slow ran (also known as fast walking whilst wiggling my butt). Today, my legs have been in agony, stiff and feeling like they are on fire.
I believe I put far too much into run 2 and that caused me problems... Need to remember to pace myself better. I also think the tree different runs in a week does not suit me. I should be running on Monday, but might leave it until Tuesday if my legs are still funny. I was in two minds about repeating week 6, but I have decided to put on to week 7 and see how I do with it and take it from there.
Argh! It does feel like one step forward, two back.
